My Constant Companion

You’ve been with me

for what seems an eternity.

A shadowy presence,

keeping me up some nights

bringing an edge to my day

and nothing I do makes you go away.

Always here but you won’t show your face

until now.

This morning we met,

as if for the first time

I saw you without the veil,

not so dreadful after all.

Grateful, I welcomed you in

with an open heart.

We sat together like the best of friends

until the incense burned out

and the sun lit the  sky.

We rose as one with a smile.
